Suspected members of the Shiite group, IMN, have shot three police officers on duty at the National Assembly.
The incident has created pandemonium within the assembly complex.
A PREMIUM TIMES reporter watched as one of the police officers was rushed to the National Assembly clinic around 1.55p.m.
Several witnesses, who recounted the face-off, said the incident occurred when the protesters tried to force their way into the assembly complex.
“They shot three policemen. One of them even appears dead already,” a witness told Journalists.
As at the time of filing this report, police officers have locked the entrance of the National Assembly as sounds of gunshots rented the air.
